“Full of energy, the 5th & 2nde classes of IC Ras Beirut teamed up with the NGO “Living Green G” in partial fulfillment of our first term community service program. Our goal was to promote a healthier environment at the Beirut Marathon which took place on Sunday November 9, 2014.
Each and every one of us joined G’s recycling stations along the route to collect empty water bottles consumed during the event from the 26,000 peace runners representing different NGOs.
It was a fulfilling experience watching all of these organizations come together and represent what they believe in.
At the end of the day, we collected more than 50, 000 empty water bottles which will be recycled and donated to “Arcenciel” to make wheelchairs for the needy.” Tala Farah 2nde D
